Teaching Red Scarf Girl: A Memoir of the Cultural Revolution in China

During this first webinar in our three-part webinar series, we’ll examine Ji-li Jiang’s affecting memoir of growing up during the Cultural Revolution and discuss ways to introduce the concept of memoir to your students, particularly as they grapple with a historical narrative of the Cultural Revolution. We’ll explore interactive elements from our new self-paced workshop, Teaching Red Scarf Girl, and how it can help you develop your own customized plan for teaching the memoir.


In this webinar, we will:

  • Examine the choices made by Jiang, her family, and her peers, offering an opportunity to learn about the Cultural Revolution

  • Consider how you can help your students reflect on their own roles as members of families, schools, neighborhoods and nations

  • Explore lesson ideas and strategies about the literary genre of memoir

This webinar is from 3pm–4pm ET. If this time does not work for your schedule, be sure to register and we’ll let you know when the recording is posted in our On-Demand Learning Center.
